Laurel and Hardy | Double Bill

The boys in bowlers are back! Join us for a glorious afternoon in the company of the world’s best-loved comedy team.

We begin with The Second Hundred Years – the duo’s first film together after their ‘official’ pairing, which finds Stan and Ollie staging a bungled prison-break. Watch out for co-star James Finlayson – the beloved local boy from Larbert – as the aristocratic host of the party they clumsily gatecrash. The finishing touch to our programme is… The Finishing Touch in which the boys are hilariously inept handymen, charged with building an alarmingly flimsy house under the unforgiving eye of the plot owner and a nurse from the neighbouring sanitorium.

Joyous and packed with perfectly timed gags these classic Laurel and Hardy gems are just the ticket for guaranteed belly laughs.
